The Salvation Army in Pill is a community of people, journeying together in faith and in life. We believe in a loving, all-embracing God who calls us to love and serve our community and live out our faith in our everyday lives.

Our Sunday worship is relaxed and informal and open to all. We hope that you will feel at home in our services:

  • 10:30am All-Together Worship

    • Our Sunday morning service is for all people and all ages. We use a mix of traditional and more modern music and singing, lively Bible teaching, and space for prayer and reflection. We have a toddler and babies area as well as activities for children. Our morning service is followed by refreshments and a chance to chat and get to know one another.

  • 6.30pm Digging Deeper Bible Study

    • Our Bible Study discussion group takes place every other week and is a great opportunity to discuss and explore the Bible in a small group setting. We love looking at difficult questions and challenging ourselves to understand more about the Bible and how it impacts our everyday lives.
  • Monthly Prayer weekends

    • Currently every second Sunday of the month we hold a prayer breakfast from 9.30am, followed by our worship service at 10.30am which has a special focus on prayer. We also provide creative prayer stations to help people pray in different ways and for different issues in society and in our world. We welcome any requests for prayer. Please email if you would like us to pray for you or for a particular situation.

Dedications and Weddings

Some things explained!


A dedication is The Salvation Army's way to christen/baptise children. A dedication of a young child is a promise made by parents and guardians to bring their child up in a Christian home, setting a good example at all times, providing love and support, and nurture not just the child's everyday physical life, but especially their spiritual growth. Preparations and details are discussed and organised with Salvation Army Officers (ministers) at the Corps (church) of your choice.


Salvation Army weddings are as any other Christian wedding, big and white or otherwise! A wedding ceremony can include traditional bits such as the white bridal dress, bridesmaids, etc, and special touches around the building such as flowers, ribbons etc. Salvation Army weddings can be led by the Officer based at the Corps, or a guest Salvation Army Officer if appropriate. Preparations and details are discussed and organised with the Salvation Army Officer. We also encourage and provide marriage preparation classes in the months leading up to the wedding.

Families and Young People

We run a variety of programmes to support families, children and young people, including toddler groups, kids clubs, a summer holiday club, all-age Sunday worship and special family events throughout the year.

Monthly Messy Church

Coming soon! Look out for details of our next Messy Church event.

  • Messy Church an all-age church where everyone is valued equally
  • It provides an informal environment for all-ages to explore and experience faith and worship through messy crafts and creative activities, food and celebration
  • It recognises we are all imperfect and lead messy lives for many reasons
  • It invites us to come together, make things together, eat together and celebrate God together
    • All children must be accompanied by an adult


Pill Salvation Army is known as a Prayer Beacon, which means that as a church, we place a particular focus on prayer. We hold regular prayer meetings, prayer days and events and feel called to pray for our community and our world. We know that prayer is a mystery, and yet we believe that God loves us to listen to him and communicate with him. Through prayer we connect with our creator, we come to know what is on God's heart and we ask for healing, guidance, strength and peace for people we care for. You can send us any requests for prayer by email or by popping them in our prayer box or on our prayer board in our hall. Anyone is welcome to come to any of our prayer events. If you would like someone to pray for you in person then please contact Lieutenants Nick and Shelley Ward.
